Johny “Bigg Rigg” Hendricks was born in Ada Oklahoma in the United States on September 12th in 1983. Hendricks dominated as a wrestler growing up winning the state championship 3 times and the National championship twice. In college Hendricks won the 2006 NCAA Division I National championships and joined the professional MMA ranks the following year.

With a record of 5-0 Hendricks joined the UFC when they absorbed a large group of fighters from the WEC. Hendricks went 4-0 in the Octagon before losing a unanimous decision to Rick Story in 2010, the first time Hendricks lost as a pro.

After 6 straight wins Hendricks fought reigning UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre for the UFC welterweight title and suffered his second defeat, this time via split decision. St, Pierre retired after his fight with Hendricks and Hendricks defeated Robbie Lawler in his next bout to win the vacant UFC welterweight title. Lawler lost the title in a rematch to Lawler 9 months later. After defeating Matt Brown at UFC 185 in March of 2015 Hendricks was expected to face Tyrone Woodley at UFC 192 but had trouble cutting weight and appears to be headed up to the middleweight division for his next fight.
